About us

ÍNSULA was born by the sea as a result of synergy. Two island creatures, who shared sunsets and hikes and also the determination to live life in a conscious way. And always connected to nature.

Hosting holistic retreats on IBIZA island, we welcome wild, sensitive and creative women to connect with nature and themselves through body-mind-soul experiences.

At ÍNSULA we support local talents and collaborate with other islanders to offer you meaningful experiences. Because who’s better than our island sisters to join us in this adventure?

I am Patricia, and I ensure that ÍNSULA becomes a fulfilling experience. I am an artistic photographer born and raised by the sea in IBIZA. In this retreat, I capture the essence of everything I love in life: human connection and exchange, nourishing food, adventurous hikes, silence, dance… The sun is the main character, the sea our best scenery. I feel fascinated by wild nature and raw beauty and find joy in little things.

I am based between Ibiza and Berlin. I have shared my heart with these two “islands” for many years now. Captivated by emotions and feelings rather than a subject itself, I have developed myself as well as my artistic work by traveling the world. As an island creature, I constantly look for new experiences. I enjoy getting lost in order to find out what’s outside my comfort zone. My wish is to share everything I learn and discover in my life path … This retreat is a way of doing so.

I am Alessia, a Vinyasa Yoga teacher and Mindfulness Coach.

My passion for yoga ignited after a lengthy solo journey. I yearned to understand my body better, uncovering its abilities, characteristics, and boundaries. I felt the need to go beyond the physical aspect. It was then that I embarked on a 200-hour course in India. Upon returning to Europe, exploring my inner self and approach to life became paramount. This led me to embrace mindfulness and delve deeper into yoga, completing a 300-hour teacher training and coaching program.

Now, through WHOLENESS, I share insights on self-discovery and holistic well-being, believing wellness starts from within.

What do they say about ÍNSULA?

“The Insula experience is one I will cherish forever. Being able to go deep into my personal wishes and desires for clarity and motivation was my personal need. It gave me a chance to see my life in a different way. Staying on a healthy schedule every day with exercise and a healthy diet made it helpful to come home and stay in the mindset. I can’t wait to go back and hopefully have some friends join too.”

“I do a lot of solo retreats but it was my first time to try it with a group of women. It turned out to be a refreshing and wonderful experience! To be on an island full of female energy and to be with like-minded women made me feel alive and connected with myself. The activities in the retreat allowed me to connect to my body, mind, and spirit. Just being on the beautiful island of Ibiza already calmed and ignited my senses. Physical activities like kayaking and hiking empowered me and made me believe in my strength. The delicious food nurtured my body while the yoga and breathing exercises soothed my mind and spirit. Two activities that were new to me, the smoke ritual and biodanza made me vulnerable in a good way and gave me a lot of deep insights. More importantly, seeing myself reflected in the women in the group revealed many things about myself and my connection to others and the world. I am so grateful to be part of the first Insula retreats and i wish many more would experience it!”

“The Insula retreat was just what I was looking for – without actually knowing what I was looking for. Beautiful villa, a great variety of activities and lovely people to do them with. A wonderful way to experience Ibiza and yourself!”

“It was just amazing! Very thoughtful & loving organisation – with activities & location a perfect experience.”
